The Dalmore Selected by Daniel Boulud

  1. $200
This collaboration between Chef Daniel Boulud and Master Distiller Richard Paterson is predictably delicious. The bespoke spirit is made from Dalmore whiskies finished in casks that previously held Moscatel, Madeira and Port wine. It’s scented with orange peel and caramel, has luxuriously rich toffee and dark-chocolate flavors and finishes with berry notes. This…  — K.N.  (12/1/2013)

Highland Park 18-Year-Old Orkney Islands Single Malt Whisky

  • Best Buy
  1. $79
Opening aromas are of sea breeze, cigar smoke, oak and malted barley; air contact releases light caramel, fudge, cocoa bean, burnt candle wick and heather. Entry is the most complex of any whisky; midpalate soars on oak, spirit and grain tastes. The greatest distilled spirit of this generation. Buy whatever you can find.  — P.P.  (11/15/2008)

The Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve

  1. $125
Honey-amber color and a big butterscotch aroma. Intriguingly dry and earthy, with leather, tobacco, dark chocolate and clove flavors, which accelerate with repeated sips and linger on. Add ice if you must, but avoid watering down this delicious after-dinner treat, which would be even better accompanied by a well-selected dark chocolate or two.  — K.N.  (12/15/2011)

Chivas Regal 25 Year Old

  1. $250
Complex and flavorful, with raisin and fresh apple aromas in a supersoft, silky texture. Add a splash of water to coax out intense clove, burnt orange, caramel and crème brûlée notes.The smoky finish is the long-lingering type that whisky aficionados exclaim over for 10 minutes as the flavors continue to kaleidoscope. For maximum enjoyment, sip without any whisky…  — K.N.  (9/1/2011)

Glenfiddich 18

  1. $90
Luxe and easy-sipping. Look for enticing notes of butterscotch, baked pear, cinnamon and clove on the nose and palate, swathed in just the right amount of smokiness.  — K.N.  (12/1/2013)

Montgomerie’s Rare Select Island

  1. $72
This single-cask Scotch was distilled at Tobermory in 1994 and aged for 18 years. Pale straw in color, it offers complex flavors, yet never loses its refreshing lightness and delicacy. Light peatiness gives way to delicate tropical-fruit notes, which in turn give way to a long, buttery vanilla finish.  — K.N.  (12/1/2013)

Aberlour a’bunadh Speyside Single Malt Whisky Batch No. 21

  • Best Buy
  1. $65
Intriguing and challenging bouquet of aromas of roasted nuts, old leather, black pepper, old oak and dried fruit. Palate entry is aggressive in spirit, but sweet and pruny; midpalate is drier and features tastes of leather and grain. Aftertaste teems with oak resin, hard cheese (meaning, rancio), candied nuts, candied fruit and dark honey. Add mineral water.  — P.P.  (12/15/2009)

The Glenlivet Archive 21 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Whisky

  1. $120
Opening bouquet offers sedate fragrances of dried flowers and malted barley; aeration stimulates marginally bigger aromas of dried yellow fruit (baked banana), toasty oak barrel and still-vigorous spirit. Palate entry is succulent, honeyed and luscious; midpalate tastes of dates, figs, S’mores, cocoa butter, nougat and dark fudge. Finishes oily, buttery…  — P.P.  (12/15/2009)
